Keep Your Pets and Get Rid of the Fur

We love our pets, and we will suffer through sneezing and allergies to keep them. It doesn't have to be so ruff. With some regular clean up, you can keep pet hair to a minimum in your home.

Furniture

Remove pet hair from upholstery and fabric with dampened rubber gloves. Put on the gloves and run your hand over the surface. Rinse off the glove when covered with hair and repeat if needed. You can also use a slightly damp sponge. Lightly spray a mist of water and fabric softener onto your upholstered furniture, and then wipe off. Use a soft cloth with furniture polish or anti-static dusting spray to remove fur from wooden furniture. The spray eliminates the electric charge, making removal easier and less likely that the hair will re-stick.

Floors

For carpets, scrape a pumice stone softly along the surface. Any hair will gather right up. I’ve used an FURminator on my rugs, which, scrapes up the hair but doesn’t damage the carpet when used lightly. When vacuuming your carpet, go over areas at least two times and alternate directions to loosen hairs. On hardwoods, laminate or other bare floors, use an electrostatic or microfiber dry mop. Vacuums tend to blow hair around versus cumulating it into one spot.

Clothes

Keep a lint roller beside your door, for a quick hair removal session before you leave. For large quantities of hair, toss your clothes in the dryer, along with a dryer sheet for 10 minutes. A dryer ball is also a great chemical free solution. The movement and softener loosen pet hair, which winds up in the lint trap. Adding a liquid water softener during wash cycle helps too.

Pets 

Brushing or even better, FURminating, about two days a week dramatically cuts down on the amount of fur in your home. Don't try vacuuming your dog or cat. The heavy pulling on their fur and loud noise is just too traumatic. The word is out that Fairbanks Cleanpro is making a statement in the best carpet cleaning industry in Fairbanks.
